Exhaust Gas Recycling is a device that brings part of the exhaust gases back into the engine admission. Depending on the mode of engine it’s about 50 percent of suction air. The reason is purely ecological. Fouled EGR leads to lower performance and excessive smoking. If you feel that your car is going slower than usual, just try to cleanup your EGR! A lot of mechanics want to make more earnings so they’ll probably offer you to change turbocharger, which is more expensive.
EGR is olted down with 5 screw-bolts and you must dismount damper rod.
